Grottos Trail, Aspen

This was pretty pretty hike. I loved it. It is a very short hike of 1.2 miles. So for people who are into hiking this would be more of sight seeing. It is gorgeous though. Good for a family hike. It is located close to the Independence Pass.

It is heavily trafficked loop trail, so parking gets filled up pretty quick. Since it is a short hike, the turn around is good. First you would reach a Ice cave. Since we hiked in the summer, there was no ice there. Getting down to the caves looked scary and tough, but was not bad. Just be careful when you step on the rocks. The shape of the cave is very interesting. We spent some time climbing in and out of every nook and cranny of the cave like monkeys then proceeded towards the falls.

I felt so good at the sight of the falls. Something about water and the color blue. It brings you serenity and peace. I had a very satisfying feel and suddenly was so content. The falls is cascading in nature and has a beautiful blue color to it. We continued our monkey business over the rocks. Some people took a swim in the water and i tested the water, man it was cold!

I had no heart to move along but we had to. We had parked a little away from the hike trail head. It was close to the creek from the fall, which was like a small gorge. We saw a group of people diving into the waters. It was fun to watch but i wouldn’t dare.

I would strongly recommend this hike/sight seeing to everyone. This is one of those places where you can’t click a bad photo.
